If you're hoping to find out who is the best Mobile Legends: Bang Bang team in the world, you won't have to wait long.

Taking place from 1 to 15 Jan next year in Jakarta, Indonesia, the M4 World Championships will feature squads from the usual suspects of Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Joining them will be teams from Cambodia, Middle East, Myanmar, Turkey, North America, LATAM, Brazil, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam.

A total of 16 teams are slated to battle it out for a share of the US$800,000 prize pool, but slot allocations have not yet been revealed.

But it's likely the winners from each of the respective leagues will automatically qualify, and it's possible runner-ups may stand a chance of a slot.

More details on location and in-game activities will also be made known at a later date.

The M3 World Championship, which took place in December last year, saw Filipino squad Blacklist International sweep Indonesian rivals ONIC Esports 4-0 to take home US$300,000.
